Looking for new friends to camp/hike with (Ellicott City)

I am a 43 year old, male, nature lover. Most of my camping buddies have moved or have young families and aren't around as much. I would very much like to find like minded individuals who love the serenity found in nature, cooking over an open flame, wildlife, and listening to music and sharing stories around the fire ring after dark. I would also have no problem introducing someone with little to no experience camping, as long as you are willing to turn your phone ringer off.

I am right down the street from Patapsco SP if you want to stay close to home. Shenandoah NP is always a good time and less than 3 hours away depending on which area within the National Park we would camp. But, I am up for going anywhere. I generally like to do at least a 3 night stay if we are traveling out of state.

I figure we can get together before hand, meet for drinks or coffee, and work out the details then. I have plenty of gear. I have a few tents so if your female or just prefer your own tent that is not a problem. I have plenty of gear and if there is something we don't have I am sure I can borrow it from a friend or purchase it from the REI in Columbia. Please reply if you are interested or if you have some suggestions of places you like to camp, hike, or recipes you like to do when you are out in the woods. Thanks.
